[ARCHIVED] City Council to Discuss Flood Hazard Regulations and CARES Act Funding

The city is eligible to receive up to $647,000 in Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Employment Security (CARES) Act funding. Distributed through Washington State, the funds are allocated based upon population. Cities will be reimbursed for certain approved uses related to the COVID-19 pandemic. At its June 1 meeting, the Mountlake Terrace City Council held a discussion on possible uses for the CARES Act funding. The city’s goal is to put the funds back into the community to help residents and small businesses.

Ideas included helping residents through food banks and paying bills, and assisting small businesses with loans or grants.

The City Council will continue the discussion and consider adopting a plan for the funding at its June 15 City Council meeting. The public can provide input via email at

Also at its June 1 meeting, the City Council was briefed on proposed updates to the city’s flood hazard regulations.  The updated flood hazard regulations and the current Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) must be adopted and in effect by June 19, 2020. A Special Meeting will be held on Monday, June 8 at 7:00 p.m. to consider an ordinance that can be in effect and submitted to FEMA prior to the deadline. The meeting will be held remotely via Zoom teleconference and telephone.
